that is awesome dude! I have one of those lian li rebadges that I was gonna totally do up, but the sheer size of the case turned me off to the idea. I have one of those little mini atx centurions in my office at school tho... this may have given me some inspiration to do that one up
thanks dude If anything I have done inspires you to go do something then I cant think of any higher form of flattery. Speechless. All I can say is go for it man! I was inspired by the others here, now its your turn to go out and impress us with something of your own creation. Best of luck!

Are there any good tutorials on this site for getting a "car-like" glossy paint finish?
Yeah there's a bunch of paint tutorials around, or you can cheat like I did and take it to a custom automotive painter I did paint some stuff myself, but the case and chasis were done by a pro shop. All in all that was worth it to me for this project. Have a search around this site, theres millions of paint threads (Q & A) and a Spooky tutorial

I bet shes going to spend hours and hours in front of that thing

Either way, that turned out awesome. That green acrylic really stands out on the purple and black (complimentary colors ftw!), bringing attention straight to the name. Exactly where it should be!

+rep because i bet your daughter would give you one if she knew how

Top effort! I like how Jessie checks out the acrylic name tag - cute.

Looking at 'before' and 'after' pics, makes one realise what huge difference this mod made to the case - its no longer impersonal, cold and boring piece of office junk!

I also like the look of the momentary switches at the back - looks well

I think you really gotta get + for this effort and for making sure that your daugther has a pleasant computing experience

Thanks man. Yeah, I know, lol, the monitor, kb, and mouse now look crap compared to the case Since she's still a bit young she tends to be rough with those items, so if anything I'll wait a bit, and maybe I will trick out those things too. Or possibly get some black replacements . One idea I had was to get here a black lcd monitor, and put a piece of clear acrylic over the screen part so it doesnt get poked/scratched. Thanks for the suggestions - we'll see
